Christophe Galtier, Zinedine Zidane, Rúben Amorim… The candidates announced on the Paris Saint-Germain bench for next season have multiplied in recent weeks. A trend confirming a little more the inevitable departure of Mauricio Pochettino on the bench of the Parisian club. And according to the latest information from The Athleticthe divorce between the Argentine coach and the Parisian team is now official.
Indeed, if RMC Sports affirmed, this Saturday, that the management of the Rouge et Bleu had informed that he was going to leave his functions within the club of the capital, the British media, through the voice of its journalist David Ornstein, goes further. Thus, during a meeting with the hierarchy of reigning French champions to take stock of the 2021-2022 financial year, the Argentinian and PSG reached an agreement to end their collaboration.
Mauricio Pochettino and PSG have reached an agreement!
A mutual decision which therefore puts an end to a relatively contrasting eighteen-month adventure in the French capital. Crowned in Ligue 1, the native of Murphy however pays for the new failure of the Parisians on the European scene. Eliminated by Real Madrid in the knockout stages of the Champions League despite an overstaffed squad and a last XXL summer transfer window (Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Messi and Nuno Mendes were recruited at a significant cost for reinforce Pochettino’s team).
Criticized for the game offered to PSG, the former coach of Tottenham, Espanyol and Southampton will therefore suffer the same fate as his predecessors, namely Thomas Tuchel, Unai Emery, Laurent Blanc or Carlo Ancelotti. A sad fate which should not, however, call into question its ability to bounce back in the weeks to come. Announced with insistence on the Manchester United bench, finally occupied by Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino remains a desired coach on the world stage. There is no doubt that a new opportunity could soon be offered to him…
